Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES - STAFF RE­PORTER

IS­LAM­ABAD—The Is­lam­abad High Court is­sued no­tices to the Cap­i­tal De­vel­op­ment Author­ity (CDA) in a pe­ti­tion seek­ing can­cel­la­tion of NonOb­jec­tion Cer­tifi­cate (NOC) of Soan Gar­den Hous­ing Scheme and im­po­si­tion of penalty for vi­o­lat­ing CDA laws.

A sin­gle judge bench of Jus­tice Athar Mi­nal­lah also main­tained sta­tus quo and sought re­ply from the re­spon­dents while hear­ing the pe­ti­tion filed by Im­ran Am­jad against the “il­le­gal” con­vert­ing/ bi­fur­ca­tion of a 1000 Sq Yard plot into four plots lo­cated in Phase 1 of the So­ci­ety.

Za­heer ud Din Us­mani coun­sel for the pe­ti­tioner ar­gued be­fore the bench that his client was a mem­ber of the Civil­ian Em­ploy­ees Co­op­er­a­tive Hous­ing So­ci­ety (CECHS) since 1989 and lives in a plot mea­sur­ing 1000 Sq Yards in Soan Gar­den. Us­mani said that the CECHS had il­le­gally bi­fur­cated orig­i­nal plot mea­sur­ing 1000 Sq Yard into four 250 Sq yards added the mas­ter plan of the CECHS shows that all the plots si­t­u­ated in the lo­cal­ity are of 1000 Sq yards and not less than that. So the con­struc­tion on bi­fur­cated plots was vi­o­la­tion of rules.

The CDA’s Build­ing Con­trol Reg­u­la­tions 2005 states that “only one bi­fur­ca­tion/ sub-di­vi­sion of plots will be al­lowed in re­spect of plots mea­sur­ing 1000 Sq Yards” and the di­vided por­tion is not less than 500 Sq Yards. It adds that the sub-di­vi­sion will, how­ever, be al­lowed on the con­di­tion that only one liv­ing unit will be per­mit­ted to be con­structed on each por­tion.
